Promising Practices for Community Engagement in Tuberculosis Activities
This publication highlights promising practices in increasing case detection and treatment rates as documented in the Maguindanao TB Control Project. It chronicles how community groups have contributed to addressing the problem of TB. Health staff and others directly involved in the project also offer their insights and recommendations for mobilizing communities. Our experience demonstrates that even in conflict-ridden areas, there is enormous human potential that can be tapped to address the needs of TB-infected clients.
